Hotter than Hell 2009 - The Brits are warming to the idea

Four days to go till....................................

Two Weeks till...............................Hotter than Hell with the first ever participation of the Mules.

And then...........................


The scene in question features the renowned actor, John Mills, downing a glass of Carlsberg at the end of their epic journey. A method actor, Mills shot the scene drinking real beer for authenticity. It apparently took 14 takes to get the perfect shot, so his demeanor was somewhat inebriated by then.
I have not yet told the Mule Team, but I think that we might do a video reenactment of this scene after the ride !!!!!! I am such a poor actor so it may require several takes

Excellent! I'll be there, too. It's a bit shorter trip for me, coming from Fort Worth.

Do y'all know if you'll be wearing the "mule" uniform or something else? There'll be 12k people there so it'll be easy to miss even VERY visible people.
